New Diagnosis - Celebrex

Hello all......I was diagnosed today with Osteoarthritis, Fibromialgia and a tumor behind my left knee. I am a wreck. The pain has gotten to the point that I can barely function. I work full-time, but it's been harder and harder just to get ready to go to work. My legs always feel like they're giving out on me. I'm a young-minded 52 y.o. female who used to have energy and a zest for life....not so anymore. After work I come home, take care of my two dogs (who I'm grateful beyond words to have) and I collapse into bed.
Anyway, my Dr., whom I really like, did a steroid injection in my left knee and prescribed 100mg of Celebrex 1x per day. Can anyone share their experiences with these disorders and whether Celebrex helped or not? As I said, I am a wreck over mom suffers from all of this too and her hands are a gnarled mess, mine have started as well and she can barely get around. I am scared and very sad. Any input is greatly appreciated!!!! I see my pain management Dr. Monday. Who knows what he will prescribe? Thank you for listening!

I've been taking Celebrex for my arthritis for years. It's worked extremely well for me. It eases the pain and helps my joints move more easily. If I miss even one day, I can feel the difference in my joints. I hope that you've found some relief by now.

It worked well for me till I turned up allergic to it. I'm on diclofenac now and it works great.
